The relationship chart at the top of this post shows that Lefa Margheim is my first cousin, once removed. The chart below it shows that Tom Ochs is a second cousin of Lefa Margheim. These facts are not remarkable in themselves, but the surprise for me was to find that Tom was a cousin of my cousin. I met Tom Ochs in 1970 as he was employed with my first husband at Gibbs Electric in Great Bend, KS in 1970. When my husband and I were married in June 1971, Tom served as the Best Man in our wedding. At that time I had not done any family history research and had no idea that there was anyone in my family by the surname of Ochs.
At left are my first husband Bill Klein and me with Kris and Tom Ochs at our home in Kansas about 1977.
